Kim Kardashian and Kanye West continue to battle divorce rumors. Although the two walked the red carpet at the Met Gala in New York this past week, reports indicate that Kardashian has met with lawyers about her crumbling marriage. Are the two going to divorce in the near future?
According to the Hollywood Gossip, things have gotten so bad between Kardashian and West that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has sought legal advice. Apparently, their relationship is at the point where they are both just tired of each other.
“[Their] marriage is finally over after a constant stream of faking happiness,” an inside source revealed. “Kim has consulted with divorce lawyers and is close to having papers drawn up.”
The reports of a coming divorce follow the couple’s recent sighting at the Met Gala. According to the International Business Times, Kardashian and West appeared happy at the event, but their actions prior to their public appearance were anything but worry-free.
West and Kardashian went on a special ski vacation in Colorado in April. Instead of a having an enjoyable time together, an insider revealed that the couple was miserable behind the scenes. Even still, they managed to put on a smile to face the public.
“Kim had plans to do things with other people during the trip. But Kanye wanted to be by her side the entire time. If they were apart he would text her nonstop,” the insider shared. “Kim and Kanye were laughing and talking to each other like there was nothing wrong in public. They refuse to talk about the end of their marriage. They never ever mention it.”
It is unknown why Kim Kardashian and West are having so many issues with their marriage. However, a source revealed that West’s desire to have more children might be the root of their problems. The pair have two kids together, North West and Saint West, yet Kanye wants a few more. But both pregnancies were high-risk, leaving Kim to proclaim that she is done carrying children.
Meanwhile, Celeb Dirty Laundry is reporting that West’s former bodyguard is also creating problems for the couple. Apparently, the once-loyal guard is threatening to reveal everything he knows about Kardashian and West and plans to dish on their “brutal fights, separate lives, and crazy tantrums.”
With West reportedly acting out after he learned the news about his bodyguard, it is clear that something is going on behind-the-scenes. At this point, it appears as though Kardashian is really miserable in her marriage, but there is a possibility that she will stick with it in order to save her public image and her fortune.
That being said, nothing official concerning their divorce has been made public, and neither West nor Kardashian have hinted at a coming split. Considering how the two have fought divorce rumors in the past and remained together, it is unclear if the latest reports are true.
Whatever happens between Kardashian and West, it is clear that she is already making moves to her benefit. Not only has Kardashian met with a team of lawyers, but she also has a good eye for business. If she does file for a divorce from West, then her image in the public, and on reality TV, would certainly be damaged.
At this point, it is too early to tell if the divorce rumors are true or not. Given how much Kardashian has to lose in a potential divorce, it would not be surprising to see her remain with West out of self-preservation. After all, Kardashian is not the type of person who gives up on something so easily, especially when it comes to her family.
